I don’t know why women are reluctant to get a bra fitting but 80% of women in the UK are wearing the wrong bra size. Your breasts – shape and size change throughout your life and Triumph suggests a bra fitting every six months. I love getting a new bra and even thought I haveContinue reading


Paris has come to London in the most delightful way. It’s an evening of burlesque: The Crazy Horse de Paris presents Forever Crazy. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual show – but I took all these images in the venue – which is a huge tent on the South Bank. It was anContinue reading


Every season a few weeks before London Fashion Week it’s impossible to buy a seamless thong in London. I think every stylist is buying about 20 pairs for their show so they quickly sell out. Well this season everything changed for the better. I was very happy to learn that Triumph Lingerie was the officialContinue reading

I love perfume – who doesn’t? Perfume is such a personal thing – it’s hard to know what makes you like a certain scent. So I was quite looking forward to attending the launch of Agent Provocateur’s three new perfumes at the new Rose Club in London. The new fragrances are based on the originalContinue reading

When a bra campaign uses the phrase #banishthebounce for their twitter you just hope it’s true. I love going for a run but my sports bra was driving me insane. Ten minutes into my run I could feel the straps cutting into my shoulders. After complaining about my bad experience on twitter quite a fewContinue reading

Love Austra‘s video The Beat & The Pulse. They are are Canadian band: Katie Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski  and bassist Dorian Wolf. Love Katie’s voice – she studied opera when she was 10 and plays viola and piano! How cool is she!

I don’t know any women who actually enjoy bra shopping even though we love lingerie and appreciate a good bra. When I go bra shopping I know it’s important to take some time out. I usually get about 5 or so bras and head towards the fitting room. This time I tried something different. IContinue reading

I saw this ad in the morning Metro. “Big or small, we love them all. At M&S you’ll find beautiful bras for every size at gorgeous prices. If nature blessed you with more than your fair share, you certainly won’t be charged extra for it. That big boob is all in the past.” I loveContinue reading

Everyone has bought underwear but how many have returned underwear that has been worn? The very thought is disgusting. A US investigation conducted by The Today Show tells us that it’s possible that we are buying underwear that’s been worn and returned directly to the shop floor. Fortunately in the UK many shops don’t allowContinue reading

Today I noticed a man in the tube that was dressed head to toe in D&G. You could tell he loved his outfit. OK, he wasn’t nearly as fab as the D&G underwear model but he was tall and slim and suited the brand. I wish I had a picture to show you but sometimesContinue reading

It’s starting to feel cooler and it’s definitely autumn, and I like to be cosy. You might not think of me as a flannel-pyjama-wearing kind of girl, but I am – and I’m picky about how soft the flannel is. Most of my pyjamas come from John Lewis but this was the first time IContinue reading

No girl wants wrinkly cleavage, as it can age you more than anything. Dita Von Teese says her greatest beauty secret is to stay away from sunshine: "I never go sunbathing. My worst fear is looking down and seeing brown, wrinkly cleavage. It will get white and wrinkly, but there is no need to rushContinue reading

I went to the opening of the new exhibit at the Fashion and Textile Museum. I find the history of underwear so fascinating! At the exhibition you can see the first patented bra from 1915, and anti-cellulite knickers and a bust-firming bra. It’s interesting when I’m shopping for something like vintage 50’s prom dresses –Continue reading

I still don’t understand why so many women are wearing ugly and ill-fitting bras. Most major department stores do bra fittings and you don’t have to pay a lot of money to find something that fits. Bras at Marks and Spencer range from £8.00- £25-00 I find women usually say "this is just an oldContinue reading


London is a great city for lingerie, there are so many styles and it’s all quite playful. I went to the Playful Promises Press Day; they were featuring their own lingerie Playful Promises, Kiss Me Deadly and Fairy Goth Mother. Kiss me Deadly has great vintage/retro inspired pieces. Their garter belt straps are just aContinue reading


It’s nice to find more companies making mastectomy bras in an array of pretty colours instead of the usual boring beige, black & white. These pocketed bras are only £28 and matching knickers are £12 from Royce Lingerie (01295 265557) and are available at a selection of Debenham’s stores. Also check out Nicola Jane andContinue reading


I like going to the Debenham’s press day, it’s quite impressive as it was in a big marquee right in central London. They show womenswear, lingerie, accessories and homeware. I usually like how it’s merchandised and the how each section is theme based. I met Eric Van Peterson a few years ago, on a shoot.Continue reading


How exciting, I love the Miller’s Residence. It’s one of my favourite hotels, it’s so charming and eclectic and it has it’s own brand of gin – Martin Miller Gin! Juliet Sybil Johns and Hayley Goodwin model Madame V‘s new collection. And it’s the dashing David Piper! Check out his blog at www.lovaganda.blogspot.com.
